Yesterday, a friend of the blog tipped us off to these pictures of Kelly Osbourne, handbag lover and recent Many Bags subject, landing at Heathrow Airport while carrying what, on first glance, appeared to be …
Versace Metallic Leather Shoulder Bag, $1625 via Net-a-Porter
Over the past few seasons, I’ve tried to be optimistic about Versace and its bags. I’ve been a long-time skeptic of the brand’s accessories while still being a big fan of the brand’s clothing, both ready-to-wear and atelier, and it’s seemed at times that the bags were just one or two steps away from where they should be. I was hopeful.
As happens so often in life, though, my hopes have been summarily dashed by the Versace Leather Shoulder Bag. This is the kind of thing you’d find in the depths of Paris Hilton’s closet circa 2001, and we all know that’s not a compliment in even the faintest sense. (more…)
If you are looking for me, find me hiding in a dark closet in the ends of the Earth behind my ex-beloved Fendi Spy. I should not be embarrassed to own a stunning Honey Spy, but now Fendi is just looking to be dragged into the open and stoned (with soft gummy bears or something, I am not that morbid). These bags are atrocious, the kind that makes you look and laugh out loud and then ponder what the hell is going on at the house of Fendi. This is not stylish, this is a mockery of handbags. The Fendi Large Sequin Spy Bag has silver/gold/brown paillettes and sequins spewed all over the front to resemble either Xerxes face or some sort of monstrous bell-tower dweller. The cluster mess just makes me cringe. If you buy this, people will be able to hear you click-clack-ringing from miles away. I am just at a loss of words. How about Fendi resigns. We are really just waiting for something decent, no more orange metallic fug or over sequin awful hideousness. Help us out please, stop anyone from buying this ghastly piece for an absurd price; Neiman Marcus for $4890.
